Pregnant Nurse Practitioner finds Relief with Chiropractic!

Hey everyone, meet Emily!

Emily found Kinkaid Family Chiropractic when she was 13 weeks pregnant.  Her midwife at Capital Region Midwifery had referred her to the office because she was having pain near her tailbone.  The pain began after she delivered her first son about 4 years ago, and was excruciating for about 3 months afterwards. The pain had finally gone away, and then came back during the 12th week of her second pregnancy.  Emily is a Nurse Practitioner, which causes her to be on her feet for long periods of time. Her pain tends to get worse with standing, prolonged sitting, or when she is doing moderately strenuous walking. Emily also occasionally complained of pain that went down into her groin and thigh.  At 13 weeks pregnant, Emily was unsure how much longer she could continue to work because of her pain. Luckily Emily found Kinkaid Family Chiropractic, and was able to continue to work up until her due date.

Emily is now 3 weeks postpartum, and she reports that her labor and delivery went very smoothly, a lot smoother than with her first son.  She gives credit to chiropractic care for helping her body feel and function it’s best so that she could have an easier labor and delivery.  At first, she had some soreness and tightness in her neck and upper back from giving birth and also from nursing a newborn. After a couple of postpartum adjustments, Emily started to feel better.  The “fourth trimester” is a very important time to get chiropractic care because of the new stress on the body that comes with taking care of a new baby. Emily continues to get chiropractic care to help support her body as she transitions back to being a mom of a newborn.

At Kinkaid Family Chiropractic there are two providers, Dr. Jessica Kinkaid and Dr. Ashley Busse.  Both Dr. Kinkaid and Dr. Busse specialize in prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care. Emily is beyond happy with her results, and wanted to share her story in hopes of helping others that have similar symptoms find answers and relief.
